Braves Vs. Mets Final: Atlanta Rolls In 14-6 Rout

The Atlanta Braves got out on New York Mets starter R.A. Dickey early, rolling to a 14-6 victory on Wednesday afternoon and taking two of three from their NL East rival.

Dickey only lasted 4.1 innings, as the knuckle-baller gave up 8 hits and 3 home runs, moving his ERA to 8.81 on the season.

Almost the entire infield got in on the fun, as 1B Freddie Freeman, 2B Dan Uggla and 3B Juan Francisco all went yard. Atlanta distributed its run production evenly, with six of their eight position players driving in at least one run.

Jair Jurrjens didn't have his best day on the mound, giving up 7 hits, 4 walks and 4 earned runs in only 4 innings, but with the Braves offense clicking on all cylinders, it didn't really matter.

Christhian Martinez got the third win of his career in the relief, moving Atlanta to 7-5 and into a tie with New York.
